Bedford is proud to announce the official release of John Burdett’s new book – TEAM: Align, Build, Connect & Develop

“When everything else is stripped away, executive search is about partnering with clients to manage a significant business risk. So significant that there are times when the very future of the business rests on “getting it right.” Risk is about “fit.” Success, in turn, means having the tools and processes to surface and rigorously assess/measure: culture, performance, leadership and team fit.

TEAM is the second entry in John Burdett’s Talent Trilogy. To learn more about the book and Bedford’s innovative approach to Teams, click here.
